Google to build data centres in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong

Google plans to build the new centres in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. -- PHOTO: AP HONG KONG (AFP) - Google said on Wednesday it will build three data centres in Asia at a cost of more than US$200 million (S$257 million), as the number of Internet users in the region soars along with stiff competition from rivals. Google plans to build the new centres in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong on a total of 22.6ha of land, the firm said. It currently owns and operates data centres in the US and Europe, but none in Asia. The centres usually house computer and telecom systems with high security and backup power supplies and will improve the firm's service to customers in the region, it said. 'The number of users and the amount of Internet use in Asia is growing faster than anywhere else in the world,' Taj Meadows, Google's Asia-Pacific policy communications manager, told AFP.
